At least two people died while two remained missing in the massive fire that swept the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) terminal at Hazira in Surat since Saturday.

The fire in the storage tank was brought under control after nearly a day's effort by fire fighters.

It took nearly 21 hours to control the flames, officials said on Sunday.

Two bodies were recovered later while two people remained missing.

Of the nine tanks at IOC facility, the tank number four had caught fire. The tank contained 5000 kilolitre of petrol when it caught fire, reports said.
